OCEAN VIEW, Del. - A Millsboro man has been charged with his 7th DUI as well as driving with a revoked license in Ocean View.

According to Ocean View police, officers working traffic enforcement in the area of Beaver Dam Road pulled over a car Saturday evening after a computer check showed the car's owner had an active warrant out of Sussex County Family Court for failing to pay child support.

When officers made contact with the driver, Darrell Bell of Millsboro, they said they smelled alcohol on his breath. Field sobriety tests showed Bell was driving under the influence. Police said they also learned Bell's driver's license was revoked, and that between 1998 and 2011, he had been convicted of DUI six times.

Bell was charged with felony DUI, noncompliance with conditions of recognizance bond, driving after judgment prohibited and driving while revoked. According to police, he was committed to the Sussex Correctional Institute on $10,000 cash bond.
